Dakar Rally

I think the Dakar Rally starts this weekend. Anyone know what channel is going to carry it this year?

If you have directv it's on the VS (608 IIRC) channel which is the old OLN channel. I think it starts Sunday at noon...

Thanks guys. I get (or got) OLN on cable. I'll check it and see if it's there.

Crap!!!

I have watched Dakar every year for 5 years now, was really looking forward to it again this year. Well, you guessed it, my cable supplier has dropped OLN! Checked the other big cable supplier in San Diego, they don't have it either!

DAMN Speedvision for dropping it a couple years ago! OLN coverage was rather bad, but now I get NOTHING!

I don't want to achieve immortality through my work...I want to achieve it through not dying.

In this backward part of the US of A (can't even get DSL on my phone line), the cable TV channel OLN has changed its name to VERSUS. Check your cable listings to see if you have VERSUS. That's where we'll be getting Dakar coverage, starting tomorrow (Sunday).

Well, if it is on VERSUS, then I'm in good shape because Dish carries it. And as far as I'm concerned they should just go ahead and rename SPEED the NASCAR Channel.

Set my DVR to record all episodes.

And I agree. Speed should become the NASCAR channel since that's about all they show any more.
